lyrics

[River]
Yo, can you read kid?
That’s my shovel
I mean it’s got my damn name on it

[Lem]
Yo I don’t want trouble man

[River]
Out here in the slave yard you’ll never work this hard!
Naw, we don’t do shit
Just come with me kid
Yo wait, one minute, what’s your name, what you in for?
Is this the first time you’ve been in and out this predicament?

[Lem]
Well I’m still a bit bitter, man
Basically the bigger man in blue could prove the green was hiding behind tooth,
Mind you, they allude to dude as moon, it’s true I’m new

[River]
Well they knew me as River
Cause when the sun reveals it’s face, in that case, mine shimmer
Can you dig? Simmer simmer
Here’s dimmer
Like you I was born to be a dirt digger
Ah man how I got here
Hands in the circle, locked wrists, momma’s fear

[Lem]
That’s how they steer though, ya hear?

[River]
Word, word

[Lem]
See my sermons a burden
A curse that hurts and what’s worse, I still do not have a hand in it
Bandit tanning in the sands of time
Granit said it’s crime
Heathen scheming to conceive meaning

[River]
I see you B,
Back out the factory
Paths of misery
Our nose bleeds history black
Life’s a bitch
And do you see what this bitch did to me?
[Lem]
Akin to me, she’s keen to leaving back scars isn’t she
And though I back off, often find myself where I was
I’m feeling half gone, lost in the other halve’s dawn

[River]
Suit yourself
Sometimes I wanna shoot myself
40s to my head, this is war, felt no dread
Shovel and grind till my mind is dead
Blisters on my fists of red
Man I could sure use a cigarette

[Lem]
Ah shit man, they don’t let packs in here?

[River]
If they did kid, I’d have a fucking 12 of beer!

[Lem]
Just miss my old home, roam thick sticks with piff

[River]
No concealment from fulfillment now it’s feeling stiff, trust

[Lem]
They can’t blame me for kicking up the dust

[River]
Hands pain me

[Lem]
I wait for dusk to save me

[River & Lem]
No one’s gonna wanna unchain we

[River]
That’s why we need these cigarettes B
Got time?

*lighter flick*

[Lem]
Naw, my ride’s here
Thanks though, I’ll see you in school tomorrow River

*exhale*

[River]
Maybe

[Mom]
Do I smell cigarettes on you?

*sigh*
*Mom rants about smoking*

[Mom]
Say something!

*rain*
*door slams*
*sigh*
